Video Shows State Trooper Diving Over Guardrail to Avoid Truck

Video released by the Ohio State Highway Patrol on February 27 shows a trooper narrowly escaping being hit by a truck on the side of the highway. The video shows a February 20 incident on I-475 in Ohio and was released as part of the highway patrol’s Move Over, Slow Down campaign.

In the dashcam video, you see the trooper escorting a motorist to his vehicle and then says “hold on, look out” before jumping over the guardrail as a tractor-trailer truck hits his patrol vehicle, pushing it forward. Credit: YouTube/Ohio State Highway Patrol
